    I know you're all probably gonna laugh but this is an idea I have been thinking about for a while. I know a dude locally who makes glass and can hook me up so I am wondering if this is worth a try. The picture sucks but basically it would be all glass except for the metal screen between the unit and the glass bubble. The heating coils would be placed inside glass tubes so it might take a while to heat up and stabilize but I'm not really worried about that. You would just crack the o2 tank open until the bubble fills with vapor and then closed it. All connections would be sealed. Sorry if there is already a thread about using oxygen, but is there any advantages/disadvantages to using tanked o2? Is it even something to consider or is an air pump a better option. You can tear up the idea if you want. Just tell me what you think.

    welcome to the forum!

    first off, I love that you are sharing your idea in an open source kind of fashion (publicly)

    and you are also on to something with the all glass idea. glass doesn't react chemically to the temperatures we are using when we are talking about vaporizing. putting your heating coil outside of the vapor path is a good call.

    there are a few vapes out there already doing this though. :) vapolution, cloud, gn0me and others. like these :) but I applaud you to go on, because everyone should have their say at how they think they can make the best vape.

    I don't understand the need for the O2 tank though. breathing pure O2 isn't good for you. what is your plan for this application? if it's just for a forced air use, then use a 20/80 oxygen/nitrogen mix. or yes a pump would work just fine too.

    I did a quick google search and found this:

    it seems though, if you have pure O2 at low pressure it isn't harmful, but when it's at a higher atmospheric pressure it will hurt you.

    some of the symptoms if you experience this.

    The oxygen was just something I was curious about. I guess I thought about oxygen bars, which I have never been to, and thought maybe it would add extra happiness or strength to the vapor. I now realize its kind of dangerous.

    The vapolution looks like a really good design at first glance. I'll check into it further for sure.

    Welcome to the forum, dano! What is the big bubble for? Also, if you are using a whip, it makes the all glass used before it somewhat irrelevant IMO.

    Also, I merged your back to back posts above. Please use the edit feature to avoid making back to back posts.

    Sorry I didnt explain the bubble. I really like using the volcano or any bag vape because you can inhale as much vapor, as fast as you want. It would be awkward to pick up the glass bubble so thats what the whip would be for. I guess you could call it sort of a hybrid system. I agree it would make a lot more sense to make a glass stem for that instead of using silicone tube. I guess it would also need some sort of carb or valve somewhere or you wont be able to draw anything after it fills up and the pump shuts off..
